This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is a variation on Bippety Bop(1)
: all players in a circle, one
player in the middle who is `it`. This player picks a player in the circle
and yells `bippety-bippety-bop` at her. If he manages to get to `bop`
before she can say `bop`, she becomes `it`.
Other possibilities are:
- Just say `bop` if anyone else reacts, that person becomes `it`
- Say `Elephant`, after which 3 players build the elephant: the
picked does the trunk (hold nose and squeeze your other arm through) and her
neighbors do the ears. If any of the 3 players screws up or does not react
he or she becomes it.
- Say `mixer`: the player in the middle becomes a mixer, holding arms
up in the air, sort of horizontally, while her neighbors position themselves
under her hands, and turn around their axises
- Say `toaster` : the player in the middle becomes a slice of bread, and
her neighbors become the toaster, by `building` the toaster with their arms
around the bread. The slice of bread pops up an down too when done!
Feel free to invent other objects (suggestions can be found under
Bippety Bop(1) ).
